Cloud storage: How secure are Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud and OneDrive?

Each of these popular cloud platforms boasts robust security - but which does it best?

Cloud computing has been a dominant force within business IT for many years and has only grown stronger in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that the majority of employees are currently working outside of the traditional office. This has seen us become even more dependent on cloud-based services which now hold more of our data, be it personal or work, than ever before. 

As such, it is critical for businesses that these platforms keep this data safe and secure - particularly as hacking and ransomware attacks are on the rise; an October report revealed that ransomware attacks in the UK increased by 80% during the pandemic as hackers take advantage of mass remote working.

So which cloud services and platforms are best? We've compiled a list of the best leading providers and weighed up their security protocols to help you sort the secure from the unsecured. For a more general overview of the pros and cons of each, you can find that here.
